Under this tie-up IICA's training programs pertaining to CSR for various levels in corporate sector shall be offered through the branches of SEED Infotech. These programs will be ideal for three different levels of management including Director, General Manager and Program Manager. The training programs will enable them to acquire skills and competencies required for the effective implementation of CSR policies and practices in accordance with the new legislation.

While speaking on this occasion, Dr. Bhaskar Chatterjee, Director General and CEO of IICA, said, "India is the only country to have such CSR legislation for the corporate sector. CSR is not mere charity, if CSR projects will be carried out with responsibility, transparency and accountability in the deficient areas of country like skill development, health care, cleaning and sanitation, then it will not only benefit the society but also the corporate firms by improving their prospective in the society exponentially."

Commenting on the need for such programs, Nikhil Pant said, "As per the legislation, companies are required to spend 2% of their profit in CSR related activities. However, due to lack of trained manpower this mandatory job is not getting implemented effectively. To overcome this problem IICA has created these programs."

"These programs will broadly cover 360˚overview of CSR in alignment with the new legislation, translating CSR legislation into practice, in-depth study of CSR strategy and policy formulation and detailed analysis and understanding of CSR. Each programme category will deliver training in relevant areas that leads to optimum CSR performance as per need," he added.

Narendra Barhate, CEO, SEED Infotech, said, "With these training programs, we shall aim at reducing the gap that exists for trained CSR professionals in the country. Due to the lack of trained personnel in this regard, companies fail to understand the key focus areas of the CSR process flow, delivery, evaluation and reporting as required by the new legislation. These programs will be offered through our network of 54 branches spread across various cities of the country. To begin with we shall start from Pune."

These contemporary programs will surely help professionals in providing cogent input on CSR policy-making in corporate entities and implementing agencies thereby benefit the society and organizations. Course fee of these programs will range between Rs. 30,000 - Rs. 50,000/-.
